marble "skirt" on standard alcove tub
I have a crazy idea. I was at the granite shop looking at a slab of marble for my vanity and realized I'd have tons of extra. So, I got to thinking, how would a marble "skirt" on a standard cast iron tub in an alcove setting look? I'm thinking we could cover the side of the tub as well as do a top surround that would sit on top of the lip of the tub all the way around giving it a little ledge.
Has anyone seen anything like this? I've seen it done with drop in tubs but ours is a 1940s standard tub that is getting reglazed.
